AllMusic Review by

If you don't mind the utter lack of any kind of recording information or liner notes, here's a pretty nice "budget" box set of jazz classics. There's no rhyme or reason to the collection; it's just a batch of nice, clean transfers of songs by legends ranging from Duke Ellington, Teddy Wilson, Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, and Louis Armstrong to Bud Powell, Sonny Stitt, Miles Davis, and Stephane Grappelli. Although the names are quite notable, don't expect any signature tracks here, although there are no bummers, either.
